Book signing with author Chris White

Putnam County Public Library is happy to welcome author Chris White to the library on April 19 at 7 p.m. Chris will discuss her highly acclaimed novel, “The Life List of Adrian Mandrick,” which is among, “The most anticipated fiction books of 2018,” listed by the Chicago Review of Books.

“The Life List of Adrian Mandrick” is an incisive debut novel about a pill-popping anesthesiologist and avid birder who sets out to find one of the world’s rarest species, determined to stop at nothing—until he’s forced to confront his obsessions and what they’ve cost him.

Combining wry humor and mystery with environmental adventure, “The Life List of Adrian Mandrick” is a fast-paced, engaging story that heralds the arrival of a new literary talent.

Chris White is an award-winning playwright and screenwriter, with an MFA in dramatic writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Her plays have been produced nationally and internationally, and her play, Rhythms, won the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play.

She received an Award of Merit at the Women’s Independent Film Festival for her feature-length screenplay, Weasel in the Icebox, and her short film, Mud Lotus, was an official selection at the New Hampshire, Albany, and Cincinnati Film Festivals.

White is a professor of English at DePauw University teaching creative writing. She lives near the town of Bainbridge, Indiana on Big Walnut Creek. “The Life List of Adrian Mandrick” is her first novel.
